Lily Pads for Sight Words

My students need sight word games, color activity mats and other hands-on activities to learn to read sight words. I am an autism teacher, and playing games help my students memorize sight words.

My Students

I love you! I like green! Sight words are essential to every day learning.

My students are first and second graders with autism.

They enjoy fun interactive learning and quickly learn through repetition. My students needs vary from verbal to non-verbal, therefore their needs are met differently. Having a variety of resources and implementing fun interactive sight word games to their level helps them enjoy and learn.

My Project

The sight words lily pads are going to be implemented in a variety of ways. I can have students line up, stand, or sit on a specific sight words. For my nonverbal students I can have them match the sight word lily pads. They will also play a matching or bingo game of sight words using the colors and shape mats. Then for reading, I will implement the variety of stories from the collection "Best Behavior Books" so they can apply the sight words in reading books.

The Sight Word Lily Pads Project is important to my classroom because it provides my students to enjoy and have fun learning sight words according to their need and their academic level.

We have to remember that not every student with autism learns the same way, therefore providing a variety of fun interactive lily pads games will enhance their learning to their specific need and be successful.
